Carrick Organic Pinot Blanc 2019, Central Otago

Pinot Blanc from New Zealand - Central Otago & Waitaki
Review Date : 14-Apr-2021
Bright, even pale yellow. The nose is softly growing, filling the glass with nuances of pear, apple, and citrus intermixed, butter, egg custard and subtle spices. Medium-bodied, dry to taste, aromas of apple & pear melded with citrus peels, subtle egg custard and spices lingers to a sustained finish. The wine is textural, smooth and lightly creamed texture provides a great body and flow, along with chalky minerals; refreshing acidity is integrated carry the fruit purity with elegance. This is a textural Pinot Blanc with the purity of fruit, lacy acidity and barrel-fermented complexity. Match with chawanmushi and smoked chicken breast over the next 3-5 years. The second release of Pinot Blanc handpicked fruit from a 0.4 ha block in the Cairnmuir Terrace Vineyard in Bannockburn. Whole-bunch pressed, wild fermented in old oak barriques, lees stirred during ferment, aged for 7 months in barrel. 13.5% alc, 0.85 g/l RS. BioGro organic certified. 18.5/20 pts (93 pts) Apr 2021 RRP $36
